England cricket teamâ€™s captain Michael Vaughan will have to wait a while longer before making his comeback from injury. Vaughan has not played since being forced home from the tour of India in February by a persistent knee problem. But there had been reports suggesting that having resumed training with Yorkshire, he would play in the County Championship clash with Kent at Canterbury starting on Wednesday.
â€œNot so,â€ said Yorkshireâ€™s Director of Cricket David Byas. â€œMichael wonâ€™t be playing. There has been talk of him coming back this week but thatâ€™s absolute eye-wash,â€ Byas said. â€œQuite when heâ€™s going to be back, Iâ€™m not sure - I can only say heâ€™s making progress.â€
There is a possibility Vaughan could make his comeback in the championship match against Lancashire next week and return to the international fold when the second Test gets under way on May 25. But Byas insists Vaughan will not be compelled to rush back into action.
â€œIf he comes back sooner than he should then it would a waste of time,â€ Byas added. â€œHeâ€™s very keen to come back, but come back when heâ€™s ready. â€œHeâ€™s worked very hard to get where he is â€” heâ€™s the captain of England - and heâ€™s a mature, professional cricketer, so heâ€™s not going to throw that away.â€
